I know what you're thinking, are you CRAZY?! ha! A little, but sometimes we get so used to similar outfits that we can forget that it can be fun to try different styles and colours in our wardrobe. We're all about our "signature look" or "investment pieces" that we tend to forget that it's OK to be different or to try a different style of clothing or a trend we wouldn't usually go for.
We should embrace different styles and trends we don't usually go for, why should we keep being safe with our fashion? Let your alter ego style take over for once and you'll be amazed at the result and surprised with what you might've thought wouldn't look the best to something that looks fantastic on you!
My inner arty little foxy self-burst with excitement when I saw these mismatched earrings from Isabel Marant. I love her designs and these earrings were something I'd never dare to wear, but I felt my art teacher alter ego say "Do it, wear them! THEY'LL LOOK AWESOME". Alter ego was right, they do look hella cool! I love them, they're dainty but express a part of me that I rarely show now. I'm glad I took the plunge and picked them because now I wear them regularly.
Another key piece of something I never buy is white booties because we've been told: "white gets dirty". Yes, they can, but not if you spray protectant! These studded white pointed booties from Sam Edelman were such a statement too! I love styling them with my jeans, it just gives my casual outfit such a pop!
So, what are you waiting for? #StyleHigh with Shopbop and try something a little bit different that your alter ego currently craves!
